Posted by eperales0411I got this recipe from a book (sorry I don't remember which one) and per my family and co-workers, this cake has a delicious not-empowering lemon flavor. I had tried other lemon recipes, but I have to say this is the best yet. This cake is moist and delicious. I hope everyone enjoys.
- 1 cup butter 4 eggs 2 1/3 cups all purpose flour ( I use unbleached) 1 1/2 teaspoon baking powder 1/2 teaspoon baking soda 1/4 teaspoon salt 2 cups sugar 2 tablespoon LORANN Lemon Bakery Emulsion 1 tablespoon vinegar plus enough milk to measure 1 cup Lemon-Cream Cheese Frosting 1 teaspoon lemon flavoring 6 ounce softened cream cheese 1/2 cup softened butter 4 1/2 to 4 3/4 cup powdered sugar
Preheat oven to 350 degrees In a medium bowl stir flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt; set aside. Beat butter in mixer on medium to high speed for about 30 seconds. Add sugar, and lemon flavoring untill light and fluffy. Add eggs one at a time, beating well after each one. Alternately add flour mixture and milk to butter mixture, beating on low after each addition just until combined. Spread into 3 8x2 or 2 9x2 pans. Bake for about 25 to 30 min. or until toothpick comes out clean. Frosting: Beat lemon flavoring, cream cheese, and butter untill light and fluffy, gradually add powdered sugar untill frosting reaches spreading consistency.
